Issues with MSI Installer in 4.09


Recommended Posts

We've been pushing out 4.0.5 in our enterprise. I decided to update our installers to 4.0.9. I run the command paint.net.4.0.9.install.exe /Createmsi DESKTOPSHORTCUT=0 CHECKFORUPDATES=0 QUEUENGEN=1. This runs fine and creates the two MSI installers. However, when I try to install the x64 version silently with the command PaintDotNet.msi /passive /norestart /qb REBOOT=ReallySuppress, the installer begins to run and then I get the error "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor." I recreated the 4.0.5 MSI's for the sake of testing and they worked fine.

The difference might be that since v4.0.7 .NET Framework 4.6 is required (and will be installed if necessary). Some users have experienced problems with the installation of .NET as part of the paint.net installation.

 

First - verify that you have/have not got .NET 4.6.1 installed. You can use this tool: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/astebner/2008/10/13/net-framework-setup-verification-tool-users-guide/

 

If it is not installed, try an manual installation of .NET from here: https://www.microsof...s.aspx?id=49981

 

I'd do a reboot following the .NET installation, then try installing paint.net.

You are correct! We were pushing an older version of .Net and upgrading seemed to do the trick. Thanks much!
